CPT Announces Auditions for SpringBoard (a staged reading series)

Cleveland Public Theatre is looking to cast 5 shows in this series. We are looking for a diverse group of all adult ages and types.

SpringBoard features staged readings of new scripts by local writers. The series places a special emphasis on developing directors for new work, nurturing strong relationships between directors and playwrights, and engaging the audience in the process. SpringBoard is NOT actors standing at music stands. This is staged work that conveys the rare excitement that comes from getting up on stage with little time to prepare. Audience members give feedback and engage in post-show discussions to help local playwrights improve their work.

When: Sunday August 25, 2013 from 10am-6pm

Where: CPT's Campus (6415 Detroit Ave)

Auditions are by appointment only and will be scheduled in one hour blocks. Actors will be given sides at the audition for cold readings. No prepared material is necessary, but please brings five copies of your head shot and resume. Actors should be prepared to stay for their entire scheduled hour.

Each show will involve 3-5 rehearsals and 2 performances. Rehearsals will be held on weekend days and evenings and weekday evenings. The series runs two weeks. The dates are: September 26 - October 6, 2013 Shows will alternate Thursday through Sunday.

AEA contracts may be considered. Non AEA actors will receive a very small stipend.

Interested actors should schedule an appointment with SpringBoard Audition Coordinator Caitlin Lewins by email only: caitlinlewins@gmail.com. When scheduling your audition, you must provide your preferred time and phone number.

Please do not call. Appointments will only be made via email. Thank you.
